Profile: Massive, rotund, powerfully built and virtually brainless, Sharkticons are the perfect killing machines & thus the ideal enforcers to carry out the Quintessons' verdicts. Despite their formidable teeth, claws, mace tail and maceration laser, the real reason for their invincibility lies in their overwhelming numbers. Like piranhas, Sharkticons attack their prey 'en masse and are totally oblivious to the casualties the target might inflict. They know how to do only one thing, and that is to kill and destroy. They perform that function perfectly.
Abilities: Although they prefer the taste of raw energeon, Sharkticons can digest nearly any substance and convert it to energeon, creating in them an insatiable appetite. In shark mode each is armed with multiple rows of hardened steel teeth and razor sharp claws which can slice through solid titanium as well as a spiked tails that can crush the heaviest armor plating. In robot mode they carry a maceration laser that shoots salt based corrosive liquid. Despite their lack of grace underwater, cyber-fins can provide speeds of over 150 knots.
Weaknesses: Because they are so lacking in intelligence, they can suffer frightening losses before they even realize it. This is not a problem when they are facing one foe, but against a powerful force, even their destructive ability can be diminished.
